to the pills that bring a pregnancy to an end. it's a radical and controversial step. the law on abortion is very different in northern ireland. it's only allowed in highly restricted circumstances. so only a small number of medical abortions using tablets will be provided here. many other women will still have to travel if they want a termination. because they won't meet the legal requirements in northern ireland. >> i think there will still be a lot of women that have to come to the u.k. because they don't need the legal cry tia of currently in northern ireland. so we'll be treating very small numbers of women. but actually we still want to offer those women choice and access to really good health care and advice. >> abortion provokes a particularly heated debate in northern ireland. it's so heavily restricted that many believe it's entirely illegal. official figures show between 30 and 40 a year are carried out by the m.h.s. the government is facing pressure to publish up to date guidelines. pro life campaigners say this clinic is a blatant challenge to the values of northern ireland.

worse. but don't dismiss the old framework lightly. credit for the 1986 reform law belongs to democrats like bill bradley in the senate. just as much as to president reagan. as a member of the house back then, i not only voted for it, but i whipped the votes to make sure it passed. i was on the committee set up by dan rostenkowski to get it done. the approach made a good deal of sense at the time. then, as now, the code was littered with egregious loopholes that needed to be reformed. recall the so-called passive law schools that were in place back then. they allowed wealthy taxpayers to gain the system. someone could invest in a bowling alley and then, if the bowling alley lost money, they could take a write off many times larger than their initial money incestment of their entire income tax liability. we need to get rid of such a gimmicky tax shelter. paring these loopholes allowed us to cut rates. at the time, that made sense, too. while it is critically important to insure that everyone, especially those at the top pay their fair share, 50% of the top federal tax rate is what we had
-obama group break the law in florida? outraged republicans, accused of infiltrating high schools. what are they after? on the ground in florida. what we uncovered is next. this a rather odd duo. our first lady, michelle obama and sarsars sharing tips. what do they now have in common? meet the five-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max says ha. c-max says wheeee. which is what you get, don't you see? cause c-max has lots more horsepower than prius v, a hybrid that c-max also bests in mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis and some eye problems. tell
today, brooke, this was a really politically charged hearing. it reminded me more of kind of l.a. law and a cross examination than really trying to, you know, let the state department make their explanation, whether you believe it or not, whether you believe in the end their explanations or not, cutting off the witnesses a lot, a lot of grandstanding by some members of the committee and i think what is really going to happen is i don't necessarily know if this investigation by the oversight committee is going to be the final word in what happens with this investigation, there is also an independent review board appointed by secretary of state hillary clinton, stellar people whose integrity and credibility is beyond reproach in washington and around the world are going to ask the same exact questions of these witnesses and will then make attack and then i think the american people will try to piece all of this together, and see what happened whether it could have been prevented, and what can be done, most importantly, brooke, what could be done next time to make sure that this doesn't
